A year and some change ago from today the Eagles went to LA to play the Rams in a game where Nick Foles would eventually take over for an injured Carson Wentz, and we all pretty much know what happened from there. Now this year Nick Foles again took over for an injured Wentz against the very same team, sprinkled some of his Big Dick Magic, and got a win against debatable the best team in the NFC, highlights below if you’re a scumbag and didn’t watch
Nick Foles statistically didn’t play up to his standards dropping 270 passing yards, no TDs, and a passer rating of 89.4 but his impact was immeasurable. The whole team just looked like they had a different energy and feeling to them. Just look at my Pittsburgh Panther brother Avonte Maddox, a glorified special teams player that allowed a receiver to get almost 300 yds in front of my very face when he played at Pitt, but last night he actually looked like a competent corner as he had a interception and covered the rams receiving core very well. Alshon Jeffrey also looked like the top ten receiver he is snagging 160 yards in the air including catching an absolute bomb from Big Dick Nick
Next week the surging Texans will come to the Linc to get there very own taste of Nick Foles and the gang which will be the biggest game of the season as its a must win. To end this recap i’ll leave you Nicko Mode, the greatest thing ever made, you’re welcome
Last night the Philadelphia eagles won undebatable the biggest game of the season against the redskins, securing a much needed divisional game in the process. highlights below
Golden Tate and Jordan Matthews looked really good, both seem to be developing strong connections with Carson Wentz. Doug Pederson called a running play on fourth and goal instead of passing which I thought was questionable and would cost us later, thankfully it didn’t. We also allowed a very painful 90 yard rushing touchdown courtesy of a 33 year old, but other than that our rushing defense looked very good. Darren Sproles is officially back even managing to get a TD, and honestly wasn’t an initial fan of our other running back Josh Adams but he continues to impress me more each game. Additionally Wentz looked good despite having tunnel vision on a couple plays and an interception in the redzone.
The only thing holding me back from ever being confident about the eagles is that I can only name one corner-back on the active roster, shout out to Sidney Jones, so any given Sunday we will most likely get torched by a competent wide receiver. This wasn’t a problem against the Redskins because luckily they had shit wide receivers and two shit QB’s playing last night. However next week we are only going up against one shit QB, pretty solid receivers, and a very good running back that have had over a week of prep… doesn’t make us getting a win against our the scumbag Cowboys seem very likely but that’s a topic for another day, in-depth analysis to come.
